DB2V12 Func Lev 503 - AI?

DB2V12 Func Lev 503 - AI?
Short, possibly uninformed question for the gallery, here.

In a paper datelined 2018-09-21, IBM writer Paul McWilliams announces that Db2 V12 z/OS function level 503 is available, and says that it's Db2 AI for z/OS.

Nobody has ever been specific about this, to my knowledge: is the AI function part of the DB2 for z/OS base product, or is there a distinct charge to enable the code? And if so, is there a basic pricing chart available? I need to know whether to recommend to my management that they purchase the product, and that's a question of expected ROI.

--thanks,

Phil S.

Well Terry did say, in the webinar a week or two ago, that it is a separate
licensed piece of software requiring Linux hardware as well...as to pricing
– You are going to have to ask IBM about that!

Hello

IBM Db2 AI for z/OS (Product ID: 5698-CGN) is a separately priced offering. Db2 for z/OS function level 503 introduces changes in Db2 for z/OS that support Db2 AI for z/OS. Apologies if that was not clear in the original blog post. I will update the blog post to clarify that.

From the beginning the blog post did link to a previous blog post, which contains links to the announcement letter  (which has some pricing information) and the Webcast.

I don't personally know anything about the pricing details, but the announcement letter has a link to the IBM Z software pricing page.
